BuzzFeed is refusing to walk back their story about former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, despite the fact that they have been directly refuted by special counsel Robert Mueller.

They have basically challenged Mueller and his team after being directly refuted.

Washington Examiner columnist Byron York believes that BuzzFeed’s refusal to walk back their story is a sign that the clout of Mueller and his team has been weakened.

It does seem to be a bad look for the special counsel investigation to go head-to-head with BuzzFeed and, despite a direct and thorough contradiction, have BuzzFeed continue to insist that its story is gospel.
